GRAY RAINY DAYS call for something other than the snappy light and dark patterns of a sunny day. You have to look for contrasts of a different sort, local color patterns, textures, chromatic shifts. This subject had all that going on. The truck was a gorgeous pale tourquoise, with shiny,sparkling paint and chrome. It was fun to set it against the background of dark oaks and to play up the complementary notes of the roadside wildflowers.
